Your $upport is Appreciated!

Since 1988, Youth Connection has been committed to providing after school programs at low or no cost to Wilmette’s 5th to 8th graders. We know connected, engaged youth are vital to our community, and our programs encourage them to participate, learn and have fun in inclusive, accepting programs.

This year, more than 28% of Highcrest students and more than 55% of WJHS students participated in a Youth Connection program.
